This Cat sculpture was inspired by a scene from the beautiful South Korean film: Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter... and Spring. In this haunting scene, a Buddhist monk holds a white cat gently in his arms, dips her tail into a bowl of ink, and uses the tip of her tail as a brush to write the Heart Sutra on the wooden deck of a monastery.

This version of the Heart Sutra Cat carries her tail in her paw (perhaps it's time for her to write her own story) and wears a variegated stockinette scarf to keep her warm through the winter.

I sculpted this Cat by hand with a custom-blended pearly white polymer compound that has a subtle sparkle and marbling. Her eyes are sky blue mother of pearl and she stands just over 5-inches tall.

You will receive the exact same figurine in the photos, and she is ready-to-ship. She'll be on her way within two business days of payment. She will arrive in a handsome gift box with a descriptive card, ready for giving or receiving. All of my Poupettes are sculpted by hand, one at a time, and stamped on the underside with my maker's mark.

As soon as payment is received, I'll confirm the shipping date. You'll receive shipping confirmation once she's on her way, and a tracking number, if available for your country.

My figurines are made of non-toxic polymer and are not painted or varnished, as the pigment is permanently suspended in the polymer. Therefore, they can stand directly on a cake and won't be damaged by, or damage your cake. They are waterproof, and can be carefully hand-washed with a gentle soap as needed. For minor repairs, I recommend using a cyanoacrylate (super glue) gel for minor repairs (I prefer Loctite Gel). If a figurine arrives damaged from shipping, I will repair or replace the figurine depending on the amount of damage. Simply let me know and ship it back to me, preferably in its original packaging.
